Vancouver's Haley Blais Announces Sophomore LP 'Wisecrack,' Shares New Single "Baby Teeth"

She will tour North America this fall, including Canadian shows with Tommy Lefroy

Vancouver pop artist Haley Blais signed with Arts & Crafts this spring and released a new single — and now she's announced her first album for the label. Her sophomore LP is called Wisecrack, and it's due out September 15, with the single "Baby Teeth" out today.

The album includes previously released singles "Survivor's Guilt" and "Matchmaker" — as well as "Coolest fucking bitch in town," which Exclaim! ranked as one of the best songs of 2022. The new single "Baby Teeth" comes with a CGI-heavy video directed by Shea Oracheski.

The album reportedly delves into dark, introspective territory. Blais asked in a statement about Wisecrack, "Am I a good person or not? Are we all doing okay? Am I a good daughter? Sister? Partner? Friend?"

Scroll past the "Baby Teeth" video to see the album's tracklist, as well as her upcoming tour schedule. She will play a festival date in Victoria, BC, and she will open for Tommy Lefroy in Toronto and Montreal.

Wisecrack follows Blais's 2020 debut album, Below the Salt.
